Lil Nas X showed off his 'pregnant stomach' as he celebrated his baby shower in a trio of snaps that were shared to his Instagram account on Wednesday.
The rapper, 22, posed at the lavish event - which was complete with balloon displays, cake and even a throne - as he joked 'about to kick off my baby shower'.
The performer later shared a promotional video for his upcoming debut album, Montero, to his account, during which he was seen looking around an empty function after no one showed up.
Lil Nas X was seen wearing a vibrantly multicolored silk robe that draped down to his legs in the trio of shots.
The Old Town Road rapper, born Montero Lamar Hill, offset the eye-catching design of his outerwear with a pair of white pants.
Lil Nas X added elements of bling to his look, including a diamond encrusted necklace with a butterfly design and a pair of earrings.
The performer made sure to show off his baby bump in all three of the shots.
